New Forum


#forums #gaming #boardgames #cardgames

In an attempt to stem the tide of #gplusrefugees flocking over to MeWe or some other siloed site because "OMG there are communities!!" I figured let's start building up the forum presence here in an attempt to drive some traffic this way.

Thus: I have created a Board Games Forum for discussion of all things Board and Card Games. Join now!

@Board Games Forum

Connected from hubzilla, and it seems to work! (What do I know, I'm a total #noob on this

Also as a note, I think you have to tag it correctly to get it to federate at least on friendica, i.e. @Board Games Forum must be included (not sure if !Board Games Forum must be included also). The other posts to the forum I can see if I visit the forum's profile, but they didn't federate to me on Friendica on my stream.



Only one reason


There was only one reason to make a dice game version of Sushi Go, and it was so that this pun could be made... #gaming #puns #humor #sushi #dicegames #dice

Gaming In the New Year


Since I was taking NYEDay off as a personal holiday, and the Bean was in day care for the day, I decided to wrangle up a few friends and get some gaming in to close out the year.

First, a quick game of Onitama to pass the time as one person showed up and we waited for the other. That's my "Chess-like" (2p, abstract, board movement, capture) game of choice at the moment; it's enough like Chess that it's easy for most people to understand, enough things about the game state change that you don't need to be able to think 10-20 moves ahead (which I just can't), and there's enough variability between games that it hasn't been solved.

I finally obtained a copy of Castles of Burgundy for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and for our first play, we missed a major rule. (Turns out you have to place tiles adjacent to other tiles on your board! Whoops!) So we broke it out again and tried it, this time correctly. Surprisingly, our scores were almost as high as they were that first game, but the grouping was incredibly tight: 207-... show more




What?? I liked The Strange. (OK, so I never actually had a chance to play it, but, I mean, I've got the books and everything. When you have a 2-year-old, I'd say that counts!) Balls.

RIP

“After today, we have no immediate plans to publish additional print titles under The Strange logo”

Damn! Have not seen this until now.

I'm currently playing my first campaign with Numenera, and I could clearly see links to The Strange in the story... I guess I will need to use what they have published until now, and move on.

Re: the 2-years-old... Our son is 6, and I'm starting to introduce him to RPGs. "No Thank You Evil",the cypher-system "setting" for the youngest is my next step. tl;dr: They grow up, it gets better (gaming-wise)
